Our Partnership Development Manager James Roche writes…
Poringland Lakes’ Family Fishing Fun Days scored a “full house” of participants at its session held in glorious summer sunshine near Norwich with loads of fish caught by everyone attending.
Speaking for many, local Mum Claire said “We all enjoyed ourselves. Thanks to all the team for all their help and advice.
The children are already talking about when they can go again!”. Coordinator Ray Noble was delighted with the turn out. “We had a great day with 20 people fishing and ages varying from four-year-old Zachary to 70+ Granddad John. It was a brilliant day and I must thank all our coaches, fishing champions and helpers. Without their support, we could never run these events”.
Call Ray on 01508 493200 to try fishing at Poringland Lakes. Find more FREE events like this HERE.
